Amazing Attorney
Ben Heston was the attorney who managed my matter and I could not have asked for a better attorney to represent me. It has been a very difficult time in my life, but Ben approached my case with compassion and understanding, and did so for an entirely reasonable price. I would recommend him a thousand times over to anyone.

Excellent Service !
We were at a point where our financial affairs had reached an oppressive state of affairs. We found Ben's firm online and decided to take advantage of his free consultation. We did our homework and had a slug of questions and not just a few concerns about the whole bankruptcy process, which is not without consequences. From the beginning, Ben and his firm were everything we could have hoped for. Ben made an unpleasant necessity as painless as possible. He provided us with thorough information on our options and totally explained the process and what we could expect and he did so honestly, knowledgably, empathetically and with a degree of grace we truly appreciated. We were particularly impressed with having our questions and concerns along the way addressed in a very timely and serious fashion; all this and his fees were completely reasonable, too! We would, and have recommended Ben to others who have been equally well served.

100% RECOMMENED!
The past few months have been an unbelievably difficult time, and Ben has gone way over and above the call of duty, making the whole process not only doable and understandable, but frankly possible! I don't know if any other lawyer would have put in this amount of time and effort. I live in Mumbai, India and Ben would respond to my countless texts at all hours of the day and night. I am truly overwhelmed at the level of calm expertise and professionalism that he and his office operate with and I cannot express my gratitude enough- thank you, Ben, so so much for everything!! You are above and beyond!! THANK YOU!

Amazing Service
Ben and his team are beyond amazing! He was easy to talk to, made me extremely comfortable through the entire process and handled my case professionally. He stayed in touch with me, keeping me updated through the entire process and any time I reached out to him with a question his response was prompt. His team even contacted me by email when my case was discharged ... so I didn't even have to wait to receive the documents by mail. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone who is seeking a bankruptcy attorney. Thanks again!

Savvy attorney
Ben is a super nice guy and knows his stuff. Not judgemental at all, which when you’re having these kind of troubles is very important. He made everything simple including payment options. I am glad I was able to locate him because I lost a retainer to another lawyer on Indiana in Riverside (who shall remain nameless) that said he was handling things but was really not. With Ben he laid everything out in a way I could understand since I’m not in the legal field. Thanks again Heston and Heston. Definitley recommend.

Outstanding Attorney - Very Knowledgeable About Bankruptcy Law
Without a doubt this Attorney is extremely knowledgeable about Bankruptcy Law, not only the historical aspects of the law, but about very recent Case Law. He is both professional and compassionate. You know he understands the significant emotional impact on his clients from the very experience of having to file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. The rates he charges for his services are without a doubt well within reasonable bounds. He worked with us about how to pay for his services. Benjamin kept us fully informed of all the aspects of our case, and what to expect at each stage. We only had to appear once in our case. If you need an experienced and compassionate Bankruptcy Attorney, Benjamin Heston is the person to call.

Peace of mind
Benjamin Heston is genuine and compassionate. It may be his job but he doesn't make you feel like he's after your money. He was kind and understanding during a time where circumstances were not so kind and understanding. He's really awesome because he helped me acquire a new start, for the sake of my children and our future. I'm so grateful that the Lord guided me to Ben Heston, I went through 3 consultations before finding Ben. And I'm glad I did my research.

Great Lawyer
I filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and Benjamin was the attorney I chose after meeting several. He was very knowledgeable and put me at ease through the process. My case was one of the few confirmed by the trustee on the day of my hearing - a testament to Benjamin's professionalism and knowledge of the Chapter 13 filing process. He was able to push for a plan that I could manage financially. I appreciate all of the hard work of Heston and Heston team.

Chapter 7
Mr. Benjamin Heston did a great job for us, communications were prompt, and thorough, very professional. We provided our required information, and he took care of the rest. I highly recommend Mr. Benjamin Heston for your legal matters in his field of expertise. A personal Chapter 7 bankruptcy is nothing I would ever want to go through, but Benjamin made it a smooth and painless experience.

Excellent well knowledgeable attorney
My experience with Mr. Heston was nothing but pleasant. I was very skittish at first with the whole bankruptcy thing, but Mr. Heston assured me that this would be the right move. He also alowed me to take sometime and think it over. No pressure phone calls or emails. He guided me during the whole process. Very thankful for this man.

Client
I had a layman file my bankruptcy who turned out to be totally incompetent. Before the case was dismissed Mr. Heston took over and appealed the dismissal and saved me from losing my home. Mr. Heston was amazing, in that he was knowledgeable, professional and "on top" of my case. I am very grateful.

Chapter 7 was easy!
I was unsure whether to hire a lawyer for my bankruptcy since I have heard that doing your own bankruptcy can be pretty easy. After meeting with Benjamin, I felt confident that not only did I need a lawyer, but Mr. Heston was the right choice. Everytime I called with questions, even stupid ones, I was met with a good attitude and thorough answers. I was also able to get rid of my car that had been dragging me down and get a new car through my bankruptcy. I was very nervous at the meeting of creditors, but with my lawyer there I felt at ease and it only lasted a minute or two. I would recommend Mr. Heston to anyone who needs to file for bankruptcy!

Great service. Thank you Ben and Elmer.
Would like to thank Ben H. for his great help in my bankruptcy. In particular, his paralegal Elmer who was outstanding. Knowledgeable, quick to respond to my concerns and emails and extremely compassionate towards my situation.- why is he not an attorney yet with this firm? :) Thank you both.

great experience during a hard time
In a very complicated and emotional process, Ben was very helpful. He broke eveything down so that I was able to understand and that made my filing process very easy and painless. Im really glad I entrusted my situation in his hands.

Knowledgeable and kind attorney!
I have been wanting to write this review for Mr. Heston for some time. However, I have found it hard to put into words just how much peace-of-mind using  his services has brought to my life. Going through a bankruptcy has the potential to be an uncomfortable and embarrassing situation. I was very anxious about finding an attorney and had meetings with several.  Mr. Heston really stuck out to me as he seemed so caring and non-judgmental, and he was very knowledgeable about chapter 13 bankruptcy. After retaining his services, I learned that my first impression could not have been more accurate. Not only is he a genuinely nice person, but he also seems to really enjoy his work and helping people like myself start over and move on.  He was great at keeping me up to date with the status of my case and he always found time to answer my questions.  Having  Ben lead me through the uncomfortable process of filing for bankruptcy made the whole thing completely bearable. I feel so grateful to have found such a kind lawyer, and I would recommend him to anyone.
